What is an energy audit?

An energy audit is used to examine the energy consumption of a building or an apartment in order to identify factors that unnecessarily increase energy consumption. During an audit, information is collected and evaluated to make meaningful recommendations that will lead to cost reductions.

What should be considered during the energy audit?

A thorough energy audit report serves to control energy consumption and costs. The following aspects should be checked during an energy audit:

Energy consumption habits

Make sure that:

  • devices are switched off after use.
  • The lighting stays off during the day.
  • The thermostat can be adjusted only 8 degrees up or down depending on the outside temperature.

Building structure

Check the insulation on walls, floors and ceilings to ensure that the heat or cold does not escape. Check the gaps around doors, windows and vents and the openings between the inside and outside of the building to see if they are draught-proof.


  • lighting - Energy-efficient options such as incandescent halogen lamps, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light emitting diodes (LEDs) can significantly reduce energy costs. Check the daily use of lighting systems and test whether they can be switched off during daylight.

  • heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) - Check that an automatic thermostat is installed and working. This can be programmed to adjust the temperature for different times of day and maximise efficiency. Check the air filters and give advice if they need cleaning.

  • Electrical devices - Check if computers and monitors are energy efficient due to their model. Check the energy factor of the water heater (EF) and determine if replacement can help reduce energy costs. Check that the refrigerator seals are in good condition, that the temperature is at the correct setting and that the coils are kept clean for maximum energy efficiency.
